As a result of the ongoing concerns posed the by coronavirus outbreak - and following specific medical advice - the fair-play handshake at City matches has been abandoned until further notice.

Whilst the Government guidance does remain unchanged, a decision has been taken by the EFL due to the way in which the Covid-19 virus can be transmitted through a handshake. 

Therefore the customary handshake between players and officials before the start of each and every EFL game has been temporarily banned. 

The EFL remains in regular dialogue with the government regarding the ongoing concerns posed by the coronavirus and is being appraised on a regular basis of developments which could potentially impact the Bantams and the competitions we participate in.

At this current time, the advice remains unchanged and supporters are advised to take appropriate prevention measures - as per the government guidance. 

The EFL will continue to provide the club with updates and advice as it is issued to ensure we have all the relevant up-to date information and we will advise our supporters accordingly. 

These matters are subject to constant change and we will update as appropriate.
